Little is known about the attitudes of doctors and patients to the use of home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and its relationship with compliance to exercise, diet, and antihypertensive medication and blood pressure (BP) control. We conducted a cross-sectional internet survey in treated patients with hypertension in Japan. Overall, 500 questionnaires were returned; 292 respondents (58.4%) reported that their doctor had recommended HBPM and among them 106 (36.3%) reported satisfactory adherence to HBPM. Compared to patients with poor adherence to HBPM, patients with satisfactory adherence to HBPM were more likely to have satisfactory compliance with exercise, diet and medication but no significant difference in BP control.
